 „The Integrity warning represents the reporting or supplying information of public intererest that a person becomes aware of during their professsional activity. The warning as instrument has a prevention role, it’s not a blackmail instrument, its role is to protect the public interest, ” said Iulia Cospanaru, the vice-director of Transparency International Romania.

„There’s what is called a black number or criminality, those situations that are never discovered, never identified, because there’s no one to reveal them. Lacking an integrity warning, respectively a person responsible of reporting what is behind, they remain unkown, ” added Cospanaru.
